Telephone Directory?

Postby Strong Eagle » Thu, 08 Sep 2005 8:13 am

Is there an online directory that I can use to look up the name of a business or person if I have the phone number available, a reverse cross reference, as it were?

Thanks.

For Singapore only?
When you go in for a job interview, I think a good thing to ask is if they ever press charges.

Sorry, no idea. The US has www.anywho.com and others.

Perhaps ask the people at

www.yellowpages.com.sg

??

SE Yellow pages works on line but you need the name, you can't usually search for a name usuing a number otherwise prank callers who randomly dial numbers would be able to find names & addresses as well.

Just call them & ask them who they are

Went through that many years ago. For everybodies information there is no crisscross directory published for singapore. Government feels it's an invasion of privacy? :? Also, no crisscross directory to see who lives at a certain address if you happen to know the address only.
